Flag of the United States of America
The Flag of the United States of America is a symbol of freedom and liberty to which Americans pledge their allegiance. Standing at attention and facing the flag with their right hand over the heart, they recite:

Nicknames for the flag include ... Old Glory, Stars and Stripes, and Star-Spangled Banner.
According to U.S. Flag Code, a worn out American flag should be destroyed in a dignified way ... preferably by burning.
